Pre-Bloomin' Activities
When you sign up to ride the Bloomin' Metric® you get more than just a bike tour. You will be getting valuable information and services in addition to the ride. For your peace of mind, it would be important that your bike is in good working order in advance of the Bloomin' Metric®. By registering, you will be able to get a free inspection for your bike at a participating bike shop, which we encourage cyclists take advantage of.
In additional to that, you will be getting a January to June free membership to Sound Cyclists Bicycle Club, where you can take advantage of various early-season rides and clinics all listed below.
